Going down

August 13, 2007 at 11:35 am (annoying)

I’m going to slap the next one who does it. Ok, I probably won’t but hell I would like to. What is up with people who take the lift one floor up. Or worse: one floor down.
I can’t tell you how much it enrages me when someone does that. Even if it’s two floors you could walk but I won’t moan too much about that.
But what, pray tell, what reason could you have for taking the lift down one floor. It’s okay if you’re in a wheelchair, have a trolley or three cups of coffee in your hand. I can understand that.
But if you’re (reasonably) young with nothing in your hands why would you do it?
What really gets to me is when the offensive person gives a half-embarrassed smile accompanied by a “I’m lazy, I know. Sorry.”
Sorry my ass. I don’t want your apology. I won’t accept it.
On the few occasions when I’ve actually made my displeasure clear said person actually got angry with me and made as if I’m some kind of social reject trying to infringe on their basic human rights.
If I was a smart scientist type person I would invent a lift that couldn’t go up or down one floor. I’d only have one lift that could do that, kinda like the disabled toilets you get in malls and such.
Or I may just end up slapping somebody.

    Damn. That is annoying. It’s like people always wanting to park as close to the mall entrance as possible. What’s up with that? There’re probably 100 parking spaces free a few metres further, but everyone’s fishing around the first few rows of parking. People are so lazy!

    I’ve seen this happen…too many times.

    Parking people don’t annoy me as much, Gnome. I don’t care if they circle as long as they don’t get in my way. But lift lazers impact directly on me if I have to stand in that life with them.
